About the Book
On a humid tropical night, Colonel S straps explosives to the mistress of a senior Malay minister and presses the detonator. American professor Jay Ghosh, who owes Colonel S a blood debt, is summoned back to Malaysia and to Agni, the daughter of his childhood romantic obsession. Jay realises, as does Agni, that nothing is as it seems and each must race against time to fight their personal demons for there are greater things at stake. A fast-paced literary thriller that pits the forces of tradition against globalization, faith against conservatism, and diversity against discrimination to paint the portrait of a modern nation wavering at the brink of terror… Praise for the Indian edition: ''It sounds like fantasy, looks like science fiction and reads like a political thriller with a literary bent' - The Telegraph ''With a strong cast of characters, Thunder Demons unveils Malaysia as it grapples with tradition in the face of globalization, especially over the issue of who is a bumiputra . Combining themes of communal violence, religion and identity, this is a racy and dramatic story of love and betrayal.'' - Kishwar Desai ''With astonishing honesty, Dipika Mukherjee's Thunder Demons exposes modern Malaysia's ugliest secrets in a page-turner of a tale about loyalty, love, family, memory, and the role of politics in the lives of ordinary human beings. This book will open the eyes of non-Malaysians and break the hearts of Malaysians by forcing us to confront what our country has become.
